Why Bother?


For years pastor and the leadership have been destroying individuals, families, and testimonies. Like his father, the Devil, pastor misleads (lies). Apparently getting away with it time and again. So why bother? Because:

1) God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked
2) The Church (Body of Christ) is to protect and defend the weak, fatherless, widow, foolish, naive.
3) The Church is to warn those committing sin. God holds us guilty if we are silent.
4) Because we are to stop evil.

For God says: “And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” (Job 1:8). “Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem. I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame. I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out. And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth” (Job 29:12-17) “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38). “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children” (Ephesians 5:1). “And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled” (1 Peter 3:13-14).

Fear of Leaving Tactic #1

If you leave here, you will fall away.”  Everyone that turns down a promotion to move to another city, or turns down an opportunity to go on the mission field outside of Calvary Temple, or does not pursue a possible mate’s life outside of Calvary Temple, or any other opportunity, does so out of fear of losing their salvation.  In addition, we have been told over and over again that other churches are not quite as good as Calvary and therefore, remaining at Calvary Temple will give you the best chance to get to heaven.

If you now believe that God might want to use you in another place, you are afraid to leave knowing that you can never find another church like Calvary Temple.  But scripture says “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand”  John 10:28. Just because you leave Calvary Temple does not mean that you will be immediately plucked from God’s hand and fall into the abyss of sin that is often associated with “the outside”.

(For other Scripture references refuting this tactic see 1 John 2:25-27)
